's mayor michael hancock. good morning. >> good morning, chris. >> this is the only debate specifically geared to domestic issues. what based on your conversations with other mayors do these people want to hear from the candidates and they need to address tomorrow night? >> i think it's very important. i believe as we heard in the past, you're going to see and hear two fundamental differences as far as genders are concerned with regard to the american people. the american people want to hear about the issues that matter most to them. those are the issues around jobs, the economy, safety in america. their children and education. the things that really meet the american people where they are. that's why we are also here today and the next 30, 45 minutes where u.s. mayors will get together and talk about those very important issues, as well. >> unemployment in your state is above the national average, about 8.2% now. >> right. >> you criticized president obama during the convention for pressuring governor romney to release his tax returns, saying that wasn't the issue that mattered the mos

of the debate. in 1988, michael dukakis could have had help not looking so cold in his response. >> we have a professor at the george washington university, john sides. when you have those moments that reinforce, either good or for ill, to a candidate, how important or damaging can these be? >> candidate debates in a general election to not move the polls a lot. only in a close race. in general, i think these dramatic moments in debates are not necessarily game changes for the average american voter. >> you wrote, usually the candidates fight to a draw. it is hard in that context to have a stunning victory or a terrible defeat. can you elaborate? >> the candidates spend a lot of time trying to lower their expectations about the performance and portray the other person as this great orator. in reality, the candidates spend a lot of time prepping for the debates and they are very good at it. they have read a lot of material and memorize a lot of material. in that context, it is hard for a candidate to really make a big enough mistake to actually swing opinion too strongly to his opponent. >>
